Dear Guys,

Don't believe QNet Company(Not even a branch office in India).
I called to one of my friend while I was working abroad. He said he is visiting Malaysia for a business oppourtunity and he had great confidence in improving this business. I asked him what is it about and He said "cannot explain on phone and need face to face meeting".
After I reached India, I called him as a friend and fixed time to meet and enjoy the evening.
As we met in the evening he tried to explain to me regarding the business oppourtunity at QNet. As I was aware about pyramid type of schemes implemented by MLM companies, I told him it is fraud. He objected and said they will do business based on relationship rather than anything. He said some bullshit about business and which is not workable as the pyramid builds up more people are going to loose their fortune. My friend asked me to meet his senior and he will explain in detail and clear my doubts. He said the person is very brilliant, he worked in top 5 companies in India, blah blah blah. Although I was aware about this type of hype I said " Ok Will behave So". They have arranged meeting at Westin Hotel at Hyderabad. Me and my friend went to the hotel and sat in the lobby and my friend started calling and sending watsapp messages to his so called seniors(Useless fellows). My friend asked me to wait in the lobby, he and his senior went to the Toilet and discussed about the knowledge I have abt the business. My friend and his senior came to me and his senior started to ask me " what is your understanding about doing business?"
"Why do you want to do business?" "What do you know about QNet?" and started to describe the abilities and talent of his senior and asked me to behave before his senior.My friend asked me to tell everybody that "He didnot say anything about the business" and I told them that I was unaware abt the business they are doing.
Now they said I am going to meet his senior. We went to the dining table across the corner and met his senior(Very intelligent as per QNet People). He started acting like he was busy talking in phone and maintaining multiple phones and Ipads(Just hyping himself). Then he asked what do I know about Multi Level Marketting and QNet business strategies. After some talk he said they are not concentrating on promoting products but their strategy depends on how many people can I bring into the organization. They say their business is purely systematic( Not systematic -- barbaric), My friend joined by paying 5.5Lacs purchased tourism package(useless package) and a watch(They say limited edition watch). When I asked about investment he said I will be getting only tourism package for 10 Lacs(I am unaware why system changed here).

As I am screwing the person with the details I require to do an investment with QNet and how I am going to bring people into the company. He always says there will be training sessions and I need to join inorder to avail training.
Afterthat he changed the discussion to general issues avoiding further embrassement.

I sincerely request you folks "Please don't join QNet as it is not worth you pay them and mere waste of time and efforts".

Madras High Court in 2005 declared MLM as illegal business. Qnet previously known as Goldquest and Questnet have been declared fraudulent companies by SFIO and Parliament of India. Qnet founder Vijay Eswaran is an accused in fraud Goldquest case filed by Chennai police in 2008. MPID Act have been imposed on Qnet and Bombay High Court has declared it as nothing but money circulation as per PCMS Act. Enforcement Directorate has registered a case and Economic Offenses Wing Mumbai has arrested few leaders like Ram Singh of Qnet Infiniti group. Lookout circular issued against Infiniti leaders like Sachin Gupta, Kavita, Sharfun Shaikh, who have fled to places like Dubai. CERT has blocked Qnet websites under Court’s order. CB-CBI of Andhra Pradesh shut down Questnet and case is going on in court. Govt of Andhra Pradesh has passed order for attachment of properties of Questnet. Questnet MD Pushpam Appalanaidu has been arrested. Michael Ferriera of Team Faith and shareholder of Vihaan Direct Selling, a franchise of Qnet have been denied anticipatory bail by High Court. Maharashtra CM has assured enquiry into Qnet operations. Now case has reached in supreme court and I am sure that after rejection of anticipatory bail finally from Supreme Court Vihaan Directors and Michael ferreira along with suresh thimri will go to jail. In India Qnet IR are duping and looting people on daily basis by using planned scripted way of showing their knowns and friends a business opportunity and chance to earn 5 crores in 5 years of project in partnership. They lure friends for investment from 3 lakh to 10 lakh to start business and after taking moneybuy products on online store of Qnet portal which are very expensive and useless products. Real purpose is not to sell products online but to induce new IR to indulge in chain business to trap more and more people for earning huge commissions through binary compensation plans. Even after cases going on Qnet in all over India still these agents are continuing this banned business of Qnet agressively.

QNET-Cheating in the name of trust.
I have been cheated by Qnet IR(Independent Representative-Agent) IN400465, Mudit mishra, 9702003362(Sr Managar, Idea Cellular Ltd Mumbai corporate team). He convinced me to put INR 450,000/- and asked me to make Demad draft in the name of Vihaaan Direct selling, saying that this is for tracking centers for business opportunity.He never disclosed the name of the company before putting the money, type of work to be done, my role in the company, returns from investment etc.

He told many things.

1. This is business opportunity.
2. You will earn 5.2 cr per year.
3. This opportunity is for generations. We are doing registration for 120 years.
4. This is not for you, but for generations to come. Your wife and childeren can work in place of you if you are no more.
5. Mudit Mishra said, "sometimes in a single day, I earn more than your months salary".
6. "Dont you believe me, have faith on me. I am sr manager with Idea Cellular Ltd, Corporate team".
7. He convinced me to take the loan for the same too.

8. "Do you want to do this Gulami or live a free life by becoming financially free".
9. "If business did not work out I will give you double of your investment after 5 years".

He passed many sarcastic comments in convincing me, day in and day out.

He did not tell me the modus operandi and name of the company before putting money in. After transferring money he gave me a receipt which says, I have purchesd some product " QVI Club Gold Vacation Club Membership(INR 315,675.00) and Q-breaks 13D/12N Sawadee Samui(INR 116,800.00)" but actually I did not purchase this.

Infact on asking Mudit Mishra about the refund, he denied saying "there is no refund policy", but actually it is there. He did not let me know about the policy and he pushed me to continue, saying " If you have started something then you should not move back, you should move till the end", but after following him for 4-5 months, I realized there is no end and I would end-up criminalizing the society and myself. It is the breach of trust.

Now he is asking me to either work(recruit more people) or forget the money.

It was all done in 2 meetings.
One on weekend, saturday 4:00 PM. Other on thursday. I took leave from office as mudit mishra insisted me that Santosh rao(his super great senior) is very busy, he can meet only on week days(actually money can be transferred easily on working days).........Santosh took me to nearest branch of icici bank in his red BMW car. These people just play with words........All these are greedy people........Finally I have EMIs for the next 4 years.......Total amount including interest is more than 6.5 lacs.

Please!!!!!!! Beware of this Con-Man. He carries a dual behaviour.
His aids are 1. Rupesh shinde 2. Santhosh Rao 3. Chandrakant Dalvi 4. Pooja soni 5. Jayesh Surve

Behind Karnataka's anger: Rainfall deficits in 90% of state
Karnataka's angst and anger over a Supreme Court (SC) order to release water of the Cauvery river to neighbour Tamil Nadu is rooted in the failure of the monsoon in the state, a hidden variation of India's statistically normal monsoon.
 
Reservoirs in the Cauvery catchment are half as full as they should be, 42 per cent of minor irrigation tanks are dry statewide and 90 per cent of Karnataka's talukas -- subdivisions of districts -- recorded deficit rainfall in August. The water in Karnataka's reservoirs must now be shared between farmers in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and meet Karnataka's own drinking water needs.
 
Overall, the state was 16 per cent short of normal rainfall between June 1, 2016, and September 5, 2016, according to data from the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC).
 
The Meteorological Department classifies this as a "normal" deficit, but rainfall was intermittent and uncertain through the monsoons.
 
After two consecutive droughts, India received normal rainfall -- 2 per cent less than the 100-year average -- by the end of August 2016, but within that normality, more than a third of the country is short of rain, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) data.
 
Protests erupted in parts of Mysore-Mandya region on September 6 following the SC order and the government's decision to release water to Tamil Nadu. The government has sought a modification of the order.
 
In August, Karnataka's four zones -- south and north interior, the southern Malnad region and the coast -- recorded a 39 per cent deficit in rainfall.
 
The Malnad region, which is critical for the Cauvery's catchment area, received 977 mm in August, against the normal 1,369 mm, a 29 per cent deficit.
 
The situation worsened over the monsoon: 101 of 176 talukas in Karnataka recorded deficit rainfall (-20 to -59 per cent), while 55 talukas recorded scanty rainfall (-60 to -99 per cent) in August 2016.
 
The August rains are critical to the sowing of important crops, such as paddy, ragi, maize and sugarcane. With no more than four weeks left for the end of southwest monsoon, farmers are struggling.
 
Water levels of reservoirs in the Cauvery catchment area, including the Krishna Raja Sagara (KRS) dam in Mandya district, Kabini in Mysore, Harangi in Kodagu and Hemavathi in Hassan were less than normal (based on a 15-year average) and less than the levels in 2015, according to KSNDMC data on September 3.
 
Of 3,598 minor irrigation tanks in the state, 42 per cent are dry and no more than 12 per cent of tanks are more than half full, according to KSNDMC data.
 
The water level at KRS on September 3 was 17.96 tmcft (thousand million cubic feet), against its capacity of 49.45 tmcft, lower than last year's level over the same period (25.30 tmcft). KRS is normally full by this time.
 
The SC's order to release 15,000 cusecs to Tamil Nadu over 10 days would mean the state has to release 13.6 tmcft of water, 24 per cent of the water now available in the Cauvery basin reservoirs.
 
The situation in nine other reservoirs statewide was no better, except for Krishna Basin reservoir's Almatti dam, in northern Karnataka, which is full; Ghataprabha dam, which is at 87 per cent of its capacity; and Narayanapuram dam which is at 96 per cent of its capacity.
 
This could worsen Karnataka's drinking water situation in the coming days. Farmers' representatives argued that their livelihoods are at stake if Karnataka releases more water.
 
"We (farmers) have reduced sugarcane cultivation in 70 per cent of the area as it is water-intensive and have opted for paddy cultivation," Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (Karnataka State Farmers' Association) leader and member of legislative assembly K.S. Puttannaiah told 101reporters.com. "If the government cannot release water even for this, what will the farmers of this region do for a living?"
 
For decades, the two state governments have been fighting for water based on the rains that are unpredictable. They should find a permanent solution to the problem and consult farmer leaders before taking any decision.
 
In Mandya, where protests against the SC order are intense, sowing has been less than 25 per cent of normal as on August 22, 2016, according to Karnataka Agriculture Department data.
 
"With deficit rainfall across the state in August, there will be a reduction in proportionate yield and overall production," said H. Shivanna, Vice Chancellor, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru. "In the Cauvery basin, they are transplanting paddy (into fields) now, as it requires lesser water than sugarcane. Sowing is already delayed, and if it does not rain for another 10 days, farmers in the state will be severely hit."

Karnataka has built so many small check dams and increased the area under cultivation by multifold, and claiming thee is not enough water for them now. TN is not begging water from Karnataka and is asking only the legal rights. Why karnataka is fighting with Maharastra for water as Maharastra also received less rain. The people of Karnataka feels that Cauvery is the property of karnataka and others are after their property. Can karnataka keep the Cauvery within Karnataka, not a single drop to be sent into TN as TN can not be their drainage during flood.

When Karnataka itself is in difficult situation, what will happen to TN, which is dependent on Cauvery water. Both the states should've worked on an alternative long back.

The God of Irony is following me around at the moment (The Funny Side)
Cop: You were doing 20 kilometres an hour over the speed limit. Me: Yes, but you're standing there telling me this on a planet spinning at 1,000 kilometres an hour moving around the sun at 107,000 kmph in a solar system that travels at 789,000 kmph through a galaxy moving at 1,000 km a second. Let's talk about you." (Cop doubles penalty.)
 
So much for science. Life is so ironic these days. In a bookshop recently I saw Blink, a tome that says the key to success is making snap decisions. I couldn't decide whether to buy it.
 
Later that day, I saw a news clip in which an energy minister's speech about 24x7 electricity supply was interrupted by a power cut. He continued to talk in the dark, although I think it's fair to say that his point was undermined. That incident in India was solid proof of the truth of my long-held belief that irony is The Guiding Principle of the Universe.
 
We live in a world where a kite-flying event in Hong Kong is cancelled after weather forecasters predict "a windy day"; a world where my silly friends try to organise an Animal Rights barbecue; a world where a woman wearing a Stop Domestic Violence T-shirt in the US was arrested for hitting family members.
 
Indeed, there could be a whole sub-category of incidents involving offenders wearing ironic or apt T-shirts, says reader Joshua Poulson, who collects police mugshots. He sent me one of a cold, unsmiling villain with "DO I LOOK LIKE I CARE?" on his shirt. Women are much more likely to blame themselves for problems, and his collection includes a mugshot of an arrested female wearing a T-shirt saying: "I'm sorry, it's my fault". If she pleads not guilty in court, the shirt is going to be a problem.
 
This can also be said about a man arrested with "I'M PROBABLY LYING" emblazoned across his chest. Smart prosecutor: "Did you commit this crime, and can you tell us what your T-shirt says?" Suspect: "I'm not guilty, and 'I'M PROBABLY LYING'." 
 
Apt slogans are seen less often where I live in Asia, since our goods tend to have random, surreal sentences on them, such as: "So happy is my cucumber wind."
 
And, of course, there are the many unintentionally ironic people who comment "your stuped" (sic) on the web versions of my articles. Someone sent me a picture of a bumper sticker from a car in the US: "Your in America speak English." We need to pass a law now, before the climate change apocalypse, that allows us to legally eat anybody who writes "your" for "you're": Who's with me on that? Everybody. I thought so.
 
A few days ago, my news feed reported that insurance agents told the pastor of a storm-damaged church in Pennsylvania that they would get no money as floods are classified as "acts of God". The pastor took it in good humour, which seems wise. You can't win so you might as well smile.
 
Meanwhile, I need a judge who will listen when I explain that the movement of the Earth means it is scientifically impossible to move at less than 1,000 kilometres a second. And not double the penalty.
